Chapter 9 This chapter begins by relating death to crows. The author tells an anecdote where there was a wind storm that killed a small bird and then was eaten by a crow. Death is part of the cycle of life, and in the wild animals also must die, they die in and out of the cities. Humans have different reactions to the death of animals as the author said, when your pet dies you feel sorry because you loved that pet, but when you see a dead rat it disgusts you. Crows are related to death because they are scavenger animals, and also because there are stories like in the World War I, were crows were in the trees waiting to eat the dead soldiers. Also, the crows are related to some cultures like the Tibet ones where they offered the meat of its dead so crows take them to another world. Many animals prefer to die alone and in hiding places, but crows sometimes gather at least one members of their family when they die.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
